The Supermoon was not looking very super when I saw it around 830pm (see photo) and then later around midnight. Bright, very bright, but just an average size.

Now that life has settled down a bit and I actually have some free time, I finally got around to seeing the podiatrist again. I am at the 9 month mark since I had toe surgery and it still hurts to walk and my foot still swells up everyday. Good news is that the titanium […]

My friend Madeline, whom I met the first day of my PhD program (along with J and Issam), successfully defended her dissertation “Natural Disasters In Latin America: The Role of Disaster Type and Productive Sector On The Urban-Rural Income Gap and Rural To Urban Migration” today! I purchased a Congratulations PhD Graduation card for her […]
